    Su-27M T10M-1 Prototype 701

    17 years ago I emailed Flankerman and asked if he had any pictures of the 1988 Su-27M/Su-35 prototype that was later left at Monino. He very kindly got back to me with a goldmine. The reference photos he sent me were a game changer as he had discovered the disruptive scheme was mirrored underneath and had a bundle of photos to illustrate it. I loved the Ferris like camouflage but also the new Su-27M nose profile with the traditional cropped fins as later Su-27Ms had the squared tips. I did all the hard work expected of an Academy and Sol conversion way back then and put it away; it sat in the box (with the occasional peeks) until this year. I've made a real effort to finish unfinished projects and clear the stash a bit. I'm pleased to say it's the last 1/48 Academy for me (7 built)! I'm now looking forward to all the newer companies much improved kits. Colors were mostly AKAN mixes, Neomega cockpit, Eduard etched details, DANmodels intake covers, Armory wheels and one of Haneto's (Fairy-Hobby) beautiful corrected canopies. The decals were from Begemot except for the stars which were hand made. v My two favorite Flankers in real life and in scale. I spent the last few days repairing my Su-37 Terminator so I could take a photo like this one of 711 and 701 together. a I may as well go for the hat trick to finish.
  13. 1/48 Short Tucano converted from hobbyboss EMB-312. The following parts are modified: 1\ the original three blade is converted into a four blade propeller 2\ jet pipes are moved to lower front fuselage 3\ the nose section is slightly modified to represent a smoother cross section on the Short Tucano rather than Embraer Tucano 4\ I am going to add a frame to the original canopy

    Voyager 1/48 Hasegawa

    Hello: Here you have some pictures of my Voyager model. Its in 1/48 from Hasegawa You can see more in Sven site http://www.ninfinger.org/models/html_pix/rspvoyager.html
  15. Hi all! Well, it's that time again... Another finished project! This time it is the 1/48 Hobby Boss Su-30MKM Flanker-H conversion from the base Su-30MKK kit using the Naza Model Art MKM conversion. The build WIP thread can be viewed here: The Su-30MKM is the Malaysia specific variant of the Su-30, based off of the Indian Su-30MKI. It has canards and thrust vectoring exhaust in common with that aircraft, however there are many things that make the MKM unique among Flankers. It utilizes western avionics from France and South Africa, and many feature not seen on other Flankers. The twin-seat canard Flankers are among my favorite aircraft, however there is no kit in 1/48 of these variants (Su-30SM/MKI/MKM/MKA). Thankfully, the somewhat recently released Hobby Boss Su-30MKK gets you close, and the Naza Model Art conversion kit gets you ALMOST there. I also needed to do some scratchbuilding of the IFF "bird slicers" and a few other little things. I also need thrust vectoring nozzles, so for those I used the AMUR Reaver TV nozzles, which are really nice. I also used Fishbone Decals for the decals. The Hobby Boss kit is really quite nice. Great detail, and the fit is nearly perfect. Easy to build, it is really a simple kit. There are some inaccuracies in this kit, but they do not bother too much. The Naza resin is very nice, and fit the kit quite well once the necessary plastic is removed. This was my first conversion I have attempted, and I must say I was quite apprehensive about attempting it. But I decided to just dive in and do it, and came away relieved. I actually enjoyed it, and am glad the conversion parts fit well. I am no longer afraid of doing another in the future. I also used a Master Model Pitot, L'Arsenal Damocles Pod, and NeoMega Ejection Seats. There are a few small inaccuracies with this build, mostly with the cockpit IPs. But overall it is pretty close. Kit: 1/48 Hobby Boss Su-30MKK no. 81714 Decals: Fishbone Su-30MKM Royal Malaysian Air Force Aftermarket: Naza Model Art Su-30MKM Exterior Conversion Set, A.M.U.R. Reaver Thrust Vectoring Nozzles, L.Aresnal Damocles Pod w/Nahar Pylon, NeoMega K-36DM Seats, Master Model Pitot Tube Paints: Gunze Mr. Surfacer Black 1500 (main aircraft primer base), Tamiya Liquid White Primer (for marble coat), Mr Paint MRP-090 Lemon-Gray Russian aviation primer and MRP-181 Light Gray, Gunze Aqueous H335 Medium Seagray, and H331 Dark Seagray , Tamiya Rubber Black, Clear Blue, and Clear Yellow, Gunze Mr Color GX2 Gloss Black (gloss black primer for metalwork) and Alclad II Airframe Aluminum, Pale Burnt Metal, and Burnt Iron. Future Gloss coat for decals and Future+Tamiya XF-21 Flat Base 6:1 ratio for final matte coat. Mig Ammo Deep Gray panel wash. On to the pic... Hope you like!
  16. Hello ,this is my build last summer. I used S4804 (F-15C MSIP II flown by Jeff Hwang) but instead replaced its decals with Afterburners' 'Shogun Eagles'. Weapons came from difference sources( AIM-120Cs from Hasegawa's air-to-air weapon set, Sidewinders were from Tamiya's F-16C kit)
  17. Hey everyone! Well, I haven't done an in-progress thread in awhile, but since this project is my first real conversion (and one of my favorite aircraft), I thought I would do one for this... Besides, I may need some support and may have some questions along the way. 🙂 So the base kit for this is the Hobby Boss Su-30MKK, and I will be using the Naza Model Art Su-30MKM conversion set. I also have Fishbone decals for this aircraft. I will also be using a L'Arsenal Aero Damocles pod, AMUR Reaver Thrust Vectoring Exhausts, Master Model Pitot, and Neomega seats. So pull up a seat and enjoy the show!
  18. This is my second entry in this GB, it is 1 of 3 kits (A-4E Aggressor and F-16A Demonstrator are the other 2) I plan on building to revisit the kits my father built in 1980 for my brothers and myself while he was away doing training for the USAF. Will build it OOB using the supplied decals just as he built it, this was the model that I set as a benchmark in my early modeling career, I would stare at it for ours at all different angles imagining it in combat situations. The F-5 was lost in a move in 1985, a great loss to my collection.
  19. Good evening everyone! I recently acquired a Mach 2 kit, part of their Space Conquest Series, and thought I'd show how it's going together, considering I haven't seen any posted about here.. This is my first missile that isn't actually a space rocket, but considering its pedigree as the United States' first launch vehicle for Astronauts, I think it's a pretty important example to have. Plus, my interest and studies focus heavily on the beginning of the Space Race and Wernher von Braun & Co. I especially liked that the box featured not only an image of the missile during flight, but inserted was this photo of the German Rocketman himself. And the box itself: As I understand it, these kits are short-run, limited sort of things. Lets have a peek inside the box shall we? These pieces come in a big bag, I had removed them from it so we can get a better look. Not a whole lot in terms of piece count. The two smaller cylindrical pieces still attached to the sprues seem to be extra, probably for another version of the Redstone, I haven't researched a lot of what they have else to offer. Getting a closer look at the pieces and one can see, this will require some cleanup and a big filling operation, lots of flash and bumps on the fuselage. I'm not sure why there is a wavy, recessed pattern here on the fuselage but it will be filled. The other half has it too, both sprues have identical pieces, and identical flaws as a result. Thankfully, the plastic is thick and not warped at all. The instruction page is very basic, showing how things fit, and where to put decals. However, you see those lines on the instruction page? It is as if the printer they used was dirty when printing. They also show up on the decal sheet.... ...but even worse is that they printed the decals on the back of the decal paper. The glossy side is on the back! What? How!? Thankfully, I was planning on painting the stripe pattern. The checkerboard will be more difficult, but I can manage with patience. The US ARMY markings, I don't know. I may just have to print some decals myself for that. It makes for a pretty nice size missile when assembled as such. I've discovered that used in big enough quantities, my Tamiya putty shrinks (I've never had to use it on big gaps before!). I could use a recommendation on some putty. My local shop has Squadron, would that be good on bigger gaps? I don't have anything else in 1/48 but I've been jumping around in scales anyway. A V2 in 1/32, a Saturn V in 1/144, a shuttle in 1/72 and 1/144 and soon 1/100, and an Estes Redstone in I don't know what scale but it's big! It'll be an interesting challenge, this kit. But that's what improves our skills, the challenge of a build, whether it be piece count, photo-etch, or flash to clean and gaps to fill. More to come!
  20. Right then. So after a long time of not touching any kit with a purpose of starting AND finishing it, plus watching the two awesome Monogram F-14A builds by john53 and picknpluck, I'm going to start knocking this one out. What we have here is the 'Hunt For Red October' edition of Monogram's 1/48 F-14A Tomcat. Livery will be done in VF-211 colors for a line jet that flew on the 1997 cruise to participate in Operation Southern Watch over the skies of Iraq. This aircraft in particular is provided by FCM Decals. So far for this build I have the decals, picked up the original Steel Beach LANTIRN set (comes without the hand control unit), True Details F-14A cockpit, A.M.U.R. Reaver photoetch tail stiffeners, Eduard pe (actually for the Revell F-14D but there's still usefulness for it), and a set of Aires exhausts. The Aires exhausts are actually for the Academy kit however after a lot of digging and asking questions I have concluded that the cans will fit on the Monogram but we will see. Still pending purchase are the following: Steel Beach F-14 Tomcat Chin Sensor Steel Beach F-14 Tomcat Ventral Strakes Steel Beach F-14 Tomcat Nose Steel Beach F-14 Tomcat ECM Blisters Steel Beach F-14 Tomcat Nav Lights CrossDelta F-14 Tomcat Step Area & Formation Lights Steel Beach F-14 NACA Vent What I do not know however is what else I need for this. The items I have in limbo on whether or not to get them are: Steel Beach F-14 Tomcat BOL Rails (loaded) Steel Beach F-14 Tomcat Wheel Halves Steel Beach F-14 Tomcat Walkways Light Gray Steel Beach GPS Domes Steel Beach F-14 Tomcat Pylons Set I think that's about it. I know it's a lot, and it's a lot for just a Monogram kit but I picked this up for $5 so it should be interesting. My biggest thing is with all of the AM stuff I just want to get the aircraft right and get it right the first time. I'll start posting pictures as soon as I can and when things arrive in the mailbox. I have fall classes beginning next week plus I'm a stay at home dad to two little ones so progress will be slow to say the least. Oh here's the loadout:
  21. Hi all! I would like to share one of my latest completed projects, the 1/48 Academy U-2S Dragon Lady. I actually finished this one about a month or so ago. This kit consists of parts from the old Hawk molds (from well before I was even born!) with updated parts to make a modern Sierra. So it goes without saying that this kit contains raised panel lines. So I decided to go ahead and rescribe all of the panel lines, which I have never done before. Let me just say, I am not so sure I will ever do this again! I really HATE doing it, and I am pretty much terrible at it. I found that I sometimes had to force myself to the bench for a modelling session that I knew was just scribing. But, alas, I pushed through it. I used some aftermarket on this one, which included a Cutting Edge ASARS II nose, Pavla Cockpit set, and Caracal Decals. The nose required a little work to fit, but nothing terrible. The cockpit is very nice and dropped pretty much right in, and the decals used were quite sparse, but performed quite nicely. Overall, I am happy with the end result, however I am quite aware this is not my best effort. The re-scribing just sucked the life out of my interest in this kit, and just kinda went though the motions to get it done. Here is what I used on this build: Kit: 1/48 Academy U-2S #12307 Decals: Caracal U-2R/S & ER-2 CD48126 Aftermarket: Cutting Edge ASARS II Nose, Pavla Cockpit Set Paints: Gunze Mr. Surfacer Grey 1200 (primer base), Gunze Aqueous FS 36118 Gunship Gray and H2 Glosss Black, Tamiya Rubber Blackand Alclad II Gloss Black Primer, Airframe Aluminum, and Burnt Iron. Future Gloss coat for decals and Future+Tamiya XF-21 Flat Base 6:1 ratio for final matte coat. Molotow Liquid Chrome also used. Mig Ammo Deep Gray panel wash. Without further ado, here are the pics, hope you like!
